New Holiday Tradition!

Last Christmas I fell in love with a gorgeous green mug by Jenny Blasen of jennyblasenpottery on Etsy and just had to have it!  I've used it every single day since I received it in the mail.  A few weeks ago, I  included a beautiful orange porcelain mug by kimwestad in one of my treasuries and couldn't stop thinking about it!  I felt a little silly... like I was cheating on my green mug!  Still, I couldn't stop coveting the orange mug and finally gave in to the temptation!  Today, it arrived in the mail!

It is so beautiful and HUGE and it matches my lovely new iPod nano perfectly!  I can already feel the caffeine overload! :)

I have come to realize and accept that my mug relationship is no longer monogamous.  Therefore, I shall begin a new holiday tradition (so my mugs will not feel too betrayed) and every Christmas I will indulge my mug affair.  Till then, I will enjoy my beautiful new orange mug and my beautiful green mug will sit next to my computer holding all of my pencils and pens so I can still enjoy it and see it everyday! :)

New Netbook Case!

After lots of hard work and many prototypes, I finally finished the design of my new netbook case!
I took pictures and they are now available in my Etsy store!

My sister named the case Riley, which happens to also be the name of my friend's really cool and adorable daughter!

This case fits netbooks/laptops measuring up to 10 ½" x 7 ½" x 1 ½".  The netbook in the photographs is my sister's Dell Inspiron Mini 10.

I used neoprene to pad the case and then lined it with flannel to keep the netbook cozy and scratch free!
I also used canvas to reinforce all of the pocket openings.

The Riley case features:
▪ A spacious main compartment for your netbook 12 ¼" x 9".
▪ A front zipper pocket for your power cord, phone or mouse etc. 12 ¼" x 5 ¼"
▪ Two additional interior pockets within the front zipper pocket to hold your credit cards, USB flash drives, etc.
▪ A large pocket on the back of the case with a snap closure for your papers or a small mouse pad. 10" x 7 ½".
▪ Two pen slots: one on either side of the back pocket.

I can make one of these cases to fit any laptop, netbook or kindle.  I can also add handles or a shoulder strap and make it in any of my fabrics, many which can be found in my flickr account   I would be very happy to work with you on a custom order.  Please contact me for more information if you are interested! :)

Holiday Wrapping!

I am so excited about the pretty holiday packaging I found for my Etsy items!  I just love opening and receiving beautifully wrapped presents!  Here is a sample of what one of my Alice cases looks like wrapped in pretty holiday tissue paper with my label.  

These are the beautiful wrapping papers!

This is the Holiday card!  The outside says, "(heaven & nature sing)" and the inside says, "Wishing You A Wonderful Holiday Season."

I can wrap your purchase in any of these beautiful tissue papers and/or wrapping papers and include the card, free of charge! 

Happy Holidays!
Mary :)

Smoke and Moss Treasury

There is nothing like a beautiful treasury to lift my spirits!  Aren't those metal sheep too cool?!

It seems like lately everything has been taking a little longer than usual to get accomplished.  My computer was also out of commission (possessed) last week and my wonderful dad fixed (excorsized) it!  I am almost back on schedule and I have so many new things to share, so keep posted! :)
